I've grown up with computers around me my whole life. I started programming when I was a kid, and stuck with it ever since. I came across Linux around 1999 and have enjoyed working with it ever since.

For a job, I get to write software that runs on embedded Linux devices. I do everything from working on low-level drivers to writing shell scripts and even web apps.

comment How is the inherited file descritor vulnerability dealt with in Unices?
That makes sense, although just having close-on-exec doesn't fix the problem: you have to have the ability to request that flag from every function that returns a new file descriptor.
